AILIA to host the 2019 ISO TC 37 International Meetings in Ottawa: Sponsorship opportunities available

In 2019, Canada will host the most important ISO language standards event, the ISO TC 37 International Meetings, to be held from June 23 to June 28, 2019 in Ottawa. The meetings are hosted by AILIA (the Canadian Language Industry Association) and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), and co-hosted by the University of Ottawa. Language experts from over 60 countries are expected to attend.

The mission of ISO technical committee 37 is to serve all fields and applications, where human-human and human-machine communication are involved. This refers in particular to the language industry products, such as language technology tools and content resources, and language services. The standards this committee produces are fundamental for language resource management, knowledge management, and content management.

Governments, intergovernmental organizations and an increasing number of enterprises also use ISO TC 37 standards for the formulation of policies concerning the use of language as such, or in relation to education, information and knowledge management. A number of studies have been conducted demonstrating the increasing demands for innovative approaches to foster multilingualism and the return on investment for managing terminology and other language and content resources according to ISO TC 37 standards.

TC37 is recognized for having an impact horizontally across all industries, which is strategically important for the whole process of standardization, and its five subcommittees are:

ISO/TC 37/SC 1 Principles and methods

ISO/TC 37/SC 2 Terminology workflow and language coding

ISO/TC 37/SC 3 Management of terminology resources

ISO/TC 37/SC 4 Language resource management

ISO/TC 37/SC 5 Translation, interpreting and related technology

Major language industry providers have come forward to support the event.

For more information or if you are interested in being a sponsor, please write to Maryse Benhoff, AILIA Secretary and Chair, ISO at to discuss the opportunities available.

    chère Maryse, C'est à la fois en tant que membre de l'OTTIAQ que membre du réseau international de Plain Language et représentante de Clarity au Canada que je t'écris aujourd'hui. je serais intéressée à parrainer un événement, selon la grille que vous avez prévue. Nous avons notre comité des normes à la Fédération du Plain Language et ce serait donc mon Centre International de lisibilté qui ferait la contribution.
    merci de ton aide.
